THE NEED FOR ACTIVISM

Why is there activism on an author's website?  For me, there are two things that control my life:  love God and love others (Matthew 22:34-40).  I cannot love God or others without wanting to speak hope and truth into areas that I consider to be dark and full of pain.  I do so with the humility of knowing that I might be wrong and still need to learn, but I do so also because I must - I must love.  I, myself, have experienced a lot of pain in my life, and I am grateful for those who stopped, just like the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37), and took the time to speak hope and truth into my life.  This is why I have this section.  I hope it will both inspire and encourage those who find it.  Hopefully, I will also learn from this interaction with my audience.

“I have heard their groans and sighs, and seen their tears, and I would give every drop of blood in my veins to free them.”
